Eagle County Republicans’ chairwoman honored

The Eagle County Republican Executive Committee traveled to Denver on March 29-30 for the organization meetings that are held in every odd numbered year. The meetings and elections form the structure that will carry the party through the even-numbered election years.

In a highlight on March 29, Kaye Ferry, chair of Eagle County Republicans, was inducted into the Colorado Republican Hall of Fame. This program started in 2017 and occurs every two years with awards presented at the Centennial Dinner.

This year three people were honored for their continuous efforts and hard work in support of the Colorado Republican Party. Through their leadership and dedication, the conservative ideals of Republicans are encouraged, respected and fostered throughout the state.

“What an exciting honor to be given,” Ferry said. “But we all know these things don’t occur in a vacuum. Without the help of my incredible executive committee and the support of our volunteers and donors, this could not have happened.”

The serious business got into full swing on March 30. The meetings opened with bylaws considerations and then moved to the election of state party officers. 

In a new twist, Representative Ken Buck from the 4th Congressional District was elected state party chair with Kristi Burton Brown as vice chair and Devin Camacho as secretary. Buck plans to restructure the Colorado party by hiring previous chair Steve House as CEO to handle day-to-day operations while Buck will focus primarily on fundraising.

The Assembly then moved on to the election of officers for the various Districts. Ferry was elected to the state Executive Committee as the representative for the 53 small counties in the state. She also will serve as first vice chair of Congressional District 2 and chair of Senate District 5 and Judicial District 5.

Jennifer Woolley was elected vice chair of Congressional District 3 while in House District 26 John Rosenfeld will serve as chair with Bill Douglas as secretary. Rosenfeld was also elected as vice chair of Senate 5 and Max Schmidt as vice chair of Judicial District 5.

“Every year I am so proud of Eagle County Republicans and the positions that they are elected to fulfill and our willingness to step into these roles.  It also represents the faith that people across the state have in Eagle County’s leadership,” Ferry said. “I would be willing to say no other county has so many officers elected to leadership roles around the state.”
